Modern Traditional in Stone Canyon reveals a fine new-construction estate setting for living the best of the fresh-air Bel Air experience. All main rooms overlook a huge green lawn, guesthouse and quiet forest of nature. A two-story “cathedral nature window” in the dining gallery captures the beautiful tall sycamore and pine forest, lit at night like the Hotel Bel-Air grounds. A true swimmer’s pool and an elevated spa are comfort amenities that define the merits of this new residence. Sunny open sky bathes the backyard areas while an adventure trail leads the nature lover into the canopy of trees that embrace the property. Rarely are comfort and luxury so beautifully balanced.

The Orum House is a contemporary masterpiece with superior finishes and refined details throughout. Renowned architect Zoltan Pali designed the property to majestically float over Bel Air and encased it in glass for sweeping views of the city that extend beyond the Pacific Ocean. Thai developer Dang Bodiratnangkura masterfully envisioned three distinct wings with floor-to-ceiling walls of glass and sliding doors that open to decks and patios to provide a seamless transition to the outdoors and offer the very best of the L.A. lifestyle. Spanning over 18,800 square feet, this double-gated property is a living work of art.

Beverly Hills, $125,000,000

You can’t live in the past, but you can certainly reminisce while living in The Beverly House. This iconic property featured in The Godfather and The Bodyguard was previously owned by William Randolph Hearst and Marion Davies. It also acted as the honeymoon destination and later the West Coast presidential election headquarters for Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy. If that isn’t enough to convince you of the value of this property, try considering the four security gates, two-story library, state-of-the-art spa and nearly Olympic-size swimming pool.
4. 10445 Ashton Ave,
Los Angeles, $6,950,000
Contact: Myra Nourmand, Nourmand & Associates, email@example.com
Unique and incomparable, this is a gorgeous Tuscan four-story triplex built for a family in 2010 so that each member had their own “home” while still feeling like they were living together. In the heart of Westwood, three separate units entered by private elevator and formal entry each boast marble floors throughout the living room, kitchen and bathrooms. Living and dining rooms overlook private balconies with views of Century City. Master suites feature custom walk-in closets and two en suite bedrooms overlook the courtyard with balcony. A secure eight-car garage and outdoor fountains complete this captivating property.
5. 514 Chalette Drive,
Beverly Hills, $39,000,000
Contact: Branden and Rayni Williams, Williams & Williams Estates Group, firstname.lastname@example.org
Designed by the masterful Mark Rios of RCH Studios, who is a favorite for contemporary architecture and landscaping, the Chalette estate is a sophisticated study in glass, light and stone carved into a private oasis in the hills of Los Angeles. Guests are greeted with a dramatic 15-foot waterfall at the entry and enjoy 180-degree city views throughout. The neighborhood is filled with celebrity pedigree, and for good reason: It’s one of the most coveted streets in all of Trousdale.
